Stayed in the big double room one night. Everything was immaculate and the staff could not have been more helpful. I was on my own and was asked if I wanted to go to the pub. Fabulous. Best hostel I've ever stayed in. I had a brilliant time and would highly recommend it

Ancient stiff front door. Sub zero temperatures no heating despite it being 10c. Communal kitchen with two fridges rammed with outta date food and stank. Free tea n coffee n breakfast. Nice showers. Dorms small crammed with bunk bads at risk of catching tb or a lung infection. I got thrown out for complaining it was cold and my fault...

I spent 4 nights at Vagabonds and enjoyed it so much. While there are a few things that made it imperfect, such as the bedroom being slightly cold, and the internet sometimes being slow and regularly logging you out, it is a hostel after all and you can't expect it to be perfect. However, the vibe in this hostel is...

Oh, times of student travelling! Such an adventure, all The friendly faces (both staff and guests), nice conversations, playful atmosphere. Yes, I slept in 12-bed dorm, but there were times when I was there totally alone and could relax with a mate mug, looking at that historic view from the window. Clean bathrooms, clean beds, choice of cereals/breads/spreads for breakfast....

I had a pretty good stay of 2 nights here. Very friendly staff, clean bathrooms, amazing & hot shower, alright breakfast. My only complaint is that it was way too cold in the room, I couldn't sleep at night because I felt freezing! The first impression of the hostel was a bit messy and "hippie" kind of place, but it...

Friendly staff, will ask any of your questions, and recommend places to go. Good bathrooms and breakfast. Some nights they offer a tasty dinner at a great price. Its really close to the bus station and downtown, 5 minutes walking. I would come back

Me and my friend stayed here for 4 nights. The service was excellent. There are some small things that made it an average ratting instead of and excellent. The internet was always slow. You can tell the place is old from some of the walls peeling paint. The beds in our room were old and worn down because you could...

I would recommend the Vagabonds hostel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Belfast. Vagabonds is in a good location and only about a 15 minute walk to the center of Belfast. The hostel itself is nice and relatively small with good common areas for meeting and socializing with others. The 8-bed room I stayed in was kept...

I would definitely stay here again. Staff are friendly and make you feel so welcome. Rooms are clean, location is excellent and the home cooked meal on the first night was awesome. Thanks for making my stay so much fun!

I stayed here the night of a concert with three friends. The staff were so friendly and gave us a tour of the facilities. The quirky interior is filled with personality. There is a pool table and a kitchen that never closes. There is also a beer garden out the back. Even though my bed was directly beside an open...
